It is my estimation the the Sea Eagle 473RL is not for experienced novices.

I really like the boat but it feels a bit unsteady as if it will easily tip over. Otherwise I really like it.
First, a huge shout out to Sea Eagle for not raising their prices during the pandemic like other businesses. We have had our kayak out many times on NC lakes and rivers. Initially, it felt tippy but once realizing it's quite stable side to side that disappeared. It is super easy to transport and within 10 minutes using the standard pump we're ready to hit the water. It also packs back down really fast. Drying out after use has also been easy. We plan to load it up for some barrier island camping this spring and summer. The engineering is very impressive. The hulls and rudder are a softer plastic so I just put black gorilla tape to help protect them from scratching. Finally, a shout out to a kind soul in Portland that has owned this kayak for years, created several complimentary youtube videos, and answered several questions before we purchased. Sea Eagle is a great example of a small company doing business the right way.
Well made, portable, ideal if you life in a small apartment in a big city
